Status Epilepticus in Children
Status Epilepticus (SE) is the most common neurologic emergency in children and requires prompt recognition and treatment to reduce morbidity and mortality. The prognosis of paediatric SE depends on etiology, age, duration /stage of SE, with etiology being the most relevant predictor factor. SE mortality ranges from 3 to 11%. A global reduction of morbidity and mortality has been documented in recent years, possibly due to more appropriate treatments and an improvement in practices in paediatric ICU.
The webinar will therefore address the classification and the etiology, and mainly the therapeutical approach to SE, from the out of hospital setting to the Refractory and Super Refractory stage.
